The JKWrestling WWE Smackdown December 6th 2013 Round-Up
By Rodney Remo
With the Slammy Awards just three days away, and WWE TLC: Tables, Ladders & Chairs looming large, SmackDown lit up Oklahoma thanks to a massive main event battle between WWE Champion Randy Orton and Daniel Bryan that led to another creepy invitation by The Wyatt Family. After suffering an Attitude Adjustment at the hands of World Heavyweight Champion John Cena on Raw – just nine days before their historic showdown at WWE TLC – WWE Champion Randy Orton claimed to be “the greatest Superstar of this or any other generation.” Orton then offered a respectful apology to The Authority. But Daniel Bryan would delay his exit, suggesting Orton apologize instead for “impersonating a champion” and promising that, no matter who comes out on top at WWE TLC, he will be waiting. The submission specialist then challenged The Viper to a match on SmackDown! With what is arguably the biggest match in WWE history looming in just over one week, though, Orton was content to simply walk off, giving Bryan a flat-out “no” for an answer. But SmackDown General Manager Vickie Guerrero didn’t agree with The Face of WWE’s decision and scheduled Orton and Bryan to battle in SmackDown’s main event!
The JKWrestling Impact Wrestling December 5th 2013 Review

Last week’s show was fun and it got a pretty positive review (from yours truly) on this site as a result, but it took the lowest rating in the history of Thursday Night TNA programming on Spike TV and this week needed to bring the audience back to meaningful wrestling programming once more. In my opinion, it succeeded, and even threw in a few announcements to look forward to at next week’s show. Yet again, TNA showed numerous signs that they’re moving forward as a television product and a financially viable brand, here’s what happened.
The JKWrestling WWE NXT December 4th 2013 Review
By Sarah Jacoby
You know how the vacation episode of any show is always the best? Don Draper went to LA, The Sopranos went to Italy, the crew of The Office had their day of training etc. For whatever reason, seeing the characters we already know encounter a new situation puts their best and their worst in a new light, often making big problems smaller and what we thought were small problems much scarier. Well, that’s how I feel about NXT every week. Every episode of WWE’s little cousin show feels like a vacation episode in which performers and viewers get to do something different from the usual programming. And I get that feeling the most when our friends from the main roster show up – they’re not the guest stars, they’re taking advantage of their vacation episode to showcase a different side to their persona and reveal what’s truly interesting about them.

JKWrestling Presents: Girl Power? Or Maybe Not So Much? – The State of Women’s Professional Wrestling

So this week on Raw the Divas match was fine. It had a good amount of time and was storyline driven. Fair enough it wasn’t the most exciting of matches and some of the spots were a little sloppy, especially from Summer Rae, but we can forgive her for that because of her lack of in-ring experience, but it was fine.

The JKWrestling WWE Raw December 2nd 2013 Review
By Joseph Wade
This week’s Raw was probably the best in months as the company established more of a balance of popular superstars throughout the show and managed to maintain more momentum throughout the show than usual. With less than two weeks until WWE TLC there were also a lot of mid-card matches announced for the pay per view, all of which seem intriguing to say the least. Here’s what happened during this great episode of WWE Raw.
The JKWrestling WWE Total Divas December 1st 2013 Review
If signing a cohabitation agreement wasn’t enough to make Nikki’s move unbearable, the bottle of marble cleaner and wipes makes her groan – and we groaned along in annoyance as well. While her sister worked in the ring as a single competitor, Nikki tried her best to make her presence known in Casa Cena after she finally moved. All he did was counter her strikes and attempts in the worst way possible. I understood that she parked the Maserati in the most horrendous way but she was nice and romantic enough to cook for him, yet all he did was worry about the crumbs on the counter. It made you want to dropkick John into a puddle of mud just so you could laugh at his possible reaction. I thought John just didn’t want Nikki changing his lifestyle or carelessly leaving her stuff around, but after watching him get all sassy over water hitting the floor (from washed dishes none the less) I was bothered. You make money off of people who love you or hate you. Hire a few maids, preferable ones that follow you and swifter behind Nikki every time she walks by.
JKWrestling Presents: The Unbiased and Completely Professional Opinion of a WWE Fan Girl (She Says)

That’s right I am making my epic return and I know it has been a while since I wrote one of these pieces but here goes. As you may of seen JKWrestling has a new small feature on its site, The Wrestling alphabet, where each week I post a superstar whos name begins with that weeks letter. To do this I have been looking through my WWE encyclopedia, and to any WWE fan who does not have this I urge you to go out and get it. It is full of really cool facts about every superstar that ever was as well as some feature pages about the history of the company, a must have for any wrestling lover. I promise that this is not just a plug for the book.
JKWrestling Presents: Unstoppable Forces and Immovable Objects: Old School Is Cool!
By Vincent Ferrari
Let’s just call a spade a spade here. WWE fans, for the most part, are jerks. Proud of it, too. Once they figure out that a chant gets under your skin, they’re all about it. When the guys in the ring yell “SHUT UP!” to the fans, that’s essentially a cue to ramp it up. When they get frustrated, lose their train of thought, or mess up a move it makes the crowd even more boisterous. For every indication by the guy in the ring that the chanting and haranguing are getting through, there’s increased chanting and haranguing. But often the fans, in their infinite desire to be jerks, will chant something that is just plain silly, and the latest victim of that is Ryback.
